The sun might have gone into hibernation for another season, but that doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s time to put down the sunscreen and take a more lax approach to your skincare regimen. In fact, winter is the perfect time to up the ante and shake things up where your skincare regimen is concerned. Incorporate the best skincare for healthy skin into your daily routine and youâ€™re bound to reap the benefits.
No good skincare routine is complete without vitamin A, which works to keep skin healthy and youthful for longer. Clever EstĂ©e Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment ($175) ensures you reap the benefits of skin health-enhancing vitamin A right around the clock with its unique time-release delivery system. Winter is the season to get on top of any unwanted pigmentation and sun damage from the summer months. Dr. Barbara Sturm Brightening Face Cream ($301 from Mecca) nourishes and hydrates skin while fighting pigmentation for a brighter, more even-toned appearance. A great cleanser is the first step in any good skincare routine and La Prairieâ€™s new Supreme Balm Cleanser ($225) takes the cake when it comes to luxury. The balm formulation is a pleasure to use and glides onto skin transforming into a luxurious oil that banishes unwanted impurities, make-up and pollutants.
Skincare for healthy skin always needs to include an SPF. Multi-tasking skincare is the way of the future but Dermalogica takes things a step further with Prisma Protect SPF30 ($119) as the broad-spectrum sunscreen does much more than protecting skin from UV damage. Using cutting-edge drone technology â€“ think an innovative skincare delivery system â€“ the formulation converts daylight into cellular energy which enhances luminosity. And then thereâ€™s the moisture magnet â€“ Prisma Protect keeps skin hydrated 24/7 while protecting skin from pollution. Think of it as your all-in-one moisturiser, sunscreen, skin protector and radiance enhancer.
The Treatment to Try
The cooler temperatures and drop in humidity that tend to come along with the cooler seasons can wreak havoc on skin. Usually radiant, well-hydrated skin can become dull and dry in a matter of weeks. Sothys Seasonal Facial Treatment ($95 for 45-minutes) helps to get skin ready for winter by strengthening its defence system. A good dose of oxygen, nourishing minerals and uplifting notes of vanilla and passion fruit prepare your complexion for the winter elements.
